photo design project: father's day

Want to show the man in your life what a truly special father he is with a unique gift from the heart? We have the perfect project for you from the lovely do-it-yourself expert, Ashley Campbell

My husband is an incredible dad to our four children, but despite how wonderful I think he is I struggle every year coming up with a Father's Day gift. I like to celebrate him as a father, but don't want to give him a corny dad gift that he'll never use or wear. Using the Interactive Guest Book album, I created a gift that both I think he'll enjoy receiving and fits in a Father's Day theme. I might just have to reuse this gift idea for every Father's Day! Here's how I created mine: Using the Interactive Guest Book album as my design I changed the wording to focus on the role my husband plays as a dad. I used the Free Speech product on my cover instead of a photo. For the title page I wrote a Father's Day letter. The rest of the pages are thoughts and drawings my children took turns filling out. I made my questions to fit the ages and personalities of my children. My older boys wrote their answers while I filled in the blanks for my younger two. The book is a great reflection of how my kids view their daddy at this stage in life. You can create your questions and pages to fit your children and their ages. Here are some of the text items I included: What is your favorite thing to do with daddy? What is daddy's favorite food? How strong is your daddy? What makes daddy smile? What was daddy like as a little boy? What is daddy's favorite thing to do with you? How do you know daddy loves you? How does daddy know you love him? I love daddy because... "Draw a picture of you and daddy." 

"How would you describe your daddy?"

"Why is daddy better than Darth Vader or a Jedi Knight?" 

"Daddy's hands will always be bigger!"

"Why does mommy love daddy?" 

"How old is daddy? What is daddy's name? Who does daddy love? What does daddy do?" 

Hopefully that gets some creative ideas sparked for your own Father's Day gifts. For clients you could come up with a set list of questions and offer these to clients searching for a unique Father's Day gift. Enjoy celebrating the dads around you...

Visiting Paris has always been on my bucket list and my two best friends and I have been talking about planning a trip for what seems like forever. Finally, one day while perusing flight deals we decided to just go for it. The plan was to travel to Paris first, London second and take the train back and forth. In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
